Mega M&M Cookie Bars!

You guys, I have a new obsession. Have you tried the MEGA M&M's? They are the best candy ever! Well, M&M's were already my favorite, so when they made them bigger, my life got even better.
Since they came out I've been thinking of a way to bake with them. Suddenly it dawned on me that a recipe my friend gave me in college would be just perfect with Mega M&M's thrown in there! (Thanks Ashley!)
Without further ado, I present to you, the Mega M&M cookie bars!


Don't they look amazing?


These bars are half brownie, half cookie, and 100% delicious!

    1. Costco has the mega M&Ms in a big resealable pouch, though I know this is very dangerous information to share!
